Allsorts week 538 - Trees and Leaves

This week it is the turn of our lovely Mervi to choose the theme and she has decided it will be...

Trees and Leaves.

Our sponsorr this week is Tattered Lace

With this lovely die set

This is my take on the theme.

Another chance to get another Christmas Card, or ten, under my belt.
The tree is a old but loved Stamping up image, from a lovely set called 'Season of Joy' 
I stamped both images in Versa Fine CLAIR - Shady Lane
The holly border is by Judi-Kins, it has two lovely Christmas borders on it.

The border stamp had a previous owner, our lovely Brenda. You may or may not remember that quite a few years ago she did this thing where everyone who left a comment on her blog, went into a draw for a stamp and this border stamp was won by me, long before I became a member of the Allsorts DT.
Who would have thought that years later it would come in really handy for a challenge at Allsorts.
Thank you again Brenda.

Thank so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave are very much appreciated.

It's a beautiful creation Kath. I recognize the tree stamp, I used to have this set then sold it when I sold many of my stampin up sets. How wonderful that you won the other stamp from Brenda. I too have won something from her blog years ago before joining the team. Such a generous soul!

So pretty Kath, xxx

Well Kath I didn't realise that and would probably never have connected the two had you not mentioned it. Is it a Hero Arts stamp I wonder, looks rather like one I remember. Regardless you have made a super card with it and so perfect for our theme.
